Nate Parham is a long time NBA fan whose newfound interest in women's basketball led him to managing SBN's Swish Appeal, which covers the WNBA and women's college basketball around the nation. In addition to contributing to Swish Appeal and Golden State of Mind, he has been a women's basketball contributor for the Capital One Cup and espnW.

Nate has covered the WNBA's Seattle Storm as well as the Seattle University Redhawks and Washington Huskies men's and women's basketball teams. Since returning to the Bay Area, he has wandered around covering things from NBA summer league to Pac-12 and WCC women's basketball.

As a Bay Area native, he is unfortunately cursed with a love for the Golden State Warriors, which is only partially offset by the resurgence of the San Francisco 49ers.

Kevin Love trade: Cavs confident, Klay Thompson still the x-factor


Minnesota is also reportedly seeking non-guaranteed contracts from Cleveland that would offer the Wolves cap relief... There's also the chance Minnesota would prefer more established players than Wiggins and Bennett. If Golden State were to put Klay Thompson back on the table, it would likely make the Wolves think long and hard about accepting the deal. Chicago can also offer a package of veterans that would include Taj Gibson and Jimmy Butler...If Cleveland if offering Wiggins and Bennett, the package is likely too good for the Wolves to pass up.
